pollster. she is the president of lake research partners. thank you for joining us inside "the war room." >> thank you. thank you for having me. >> you bet. the president and mitt romney took a step back from politics today, but new york's mayor had no qualms about speaking out on gun control. >> smoothing wores are nice but maybe it's time that the two people who want to be president of the united states stand up and tell us what they are going to do about it. because this is obviously a problem across the country. no matter where you stand on the second amendment and guns we have a right to hear from both of them concretely. not just in generalities specifically what are they going to do about guns? >> will gun control now be a presidential issue? >> sadly probably not. because the candidates probably won't differ much in their position. and that is a huge missed opportunity because it is completely out of sync with the voters. both of these candidates will end up fighting this fall over independent women voters. and independent women voters want to ban semi automatic assault weapons.

standards. how? by using the incentive of a $4.5 billion pot of federal money, and making the states compete for it. $4.5 million. that's almost a rounding error in the federal judgment. the countries' education landscape changed all at the state level. for years, for decades, the fight over raising education curriculum standards was at a standstill. but suddenly in one fell swoop the battles were over because of the race to the top. let's have a jobs version of the race to the stop. a national competition among states to create 1 million jobs in three years. here's how it could work. you launch a competition to boost sectors. for example clean energy, life sciences or advanced manufacturing. and you reward the states that propose the most effective, the most aggressive strategies and policies for job creation in those sectors including public-private partnerships. you define the effectiveness the winners will be effective if they can show how many lasting jobs can be created quickly. for example, let's say the competition was for clean energy jobs. arizona or new mexico, where there

us would talk about her and visit her facebook page and she would get invited on fox and right wing shows more often. i notice glenn beck is standing up for her. >> jennifer: exactly. we'll talk about that later in the show. you had another column out that said that the polls are really painting a dark picture for the president. we've been covering that a little bit on the show today. weak economic numbers driving swing voters to favor romney. from your perspective is there anything the obama camp should be doing to hold on to the swing voters? >> well, i think that they have to turn to talking about romney's plans for the country and what his tax plans would do. and what his support of the ryan budget would do. >> jennifer: going beyond bain. >> i'm not saying drop bain necessarily. i think the drumbeat on romney's tax returns should be kept alive and that pressure should be kept up. but i think you can make this two-pronged argument with regard to the tax plan and other things that romney has signed on to because i think explaining to swing voters what life might be like if you gi

attacks may not be working. can someone anyone, throw us a lifeline? >> we've given all the people need to know and understand about our financial situation and about how we live our life. >> clearly, we people need to quit horsen around and get serious about this election! [alarm ringing] >> wake up! wake up, wake up, wake up! up you wake, up you wake! >> jennifer: progressives, just like samuel l. jackson did in the spike lee film, do the right thing i'm calling you to wake the heck up. many of you assume that everybody thinks like we do so maybe you decide you don't have to get active because obviously the president's going to win or maybe you don't like one of his policies so you're going to protest by sitting this election out. let me tell you sitting it out is going to make you an accomplice in electing president romney. last night i interviewed jill stein, the presidential candidate for the green party on the show. i confess right now, i should have asked her to just get out of the race. now don't freak out enviros, it is not because i don't love her positions. i'm all about
